TM-E 30-451 Handbook on German Military Forces 1943-09-01
"The purpose of this handbook, which is a revision of TM 30-450 (17 December 1941), is to give both officers and enlisted men of the U. S. Army a better understanding of their principal enemy in Europe. In order to fight the Germans successfully, it is vital for the U. S. soldier to know at least in broad outline the manner in which the units of the German Armed Forces are trained, equipped, and organized, as well as something about the chain of command and the method of close cooperation between the various branches."

Very Useful Work
This is the mid-War handbook on the German Military, and is closer in its coverage of organization of the standard German units to what they were at the start of the war, while the 1945 version covers organization at the end of the war, when units were significantly smaller. Nice coverage of weapons as well. This with the 1945 version gives very complete coverage of the German Army in World War 2.
